Waiting for Chrome

Filed under: Chrome,Google — admin @ 8:42 am

When you wake up thinking “I can’t wait to try Chrome” [that's Google's new browser if you have been living living under a rock for 24hrs], you realise that you spend too much time working and thinking about the online world. It is, however, an important move that could shake up the way we use the web for years to come.

Chrome is being promoted as the first step in the brave new world without Windows, it will be the web OS. ‘Hooray’ shout the Google worshippers, professing their love for a service they have not yet tried: “I love Chrome already and I haven’t even tried it yet” says an irrational TechCrunch, presumably shortly before taking a much needed very cold shower.

I have mentioned before that I was waiting for a browser that fundamentally changes our surfing behaviour, but it would be a shame if it came from Google. But there again, for all the noise their launches attract, they haven’t been particularly great products in recent times (e.g., Knol, Lively). So maybe there is still time for a new entry into the browser market.

nb. At the time of writing this, I am still waiting for the product to be launched. It’s in Google’s index, but the link just forwards me to the Google homepage.

But hopefully I will get to try it before the day is out.
